The Friday Cinco (de Mayo Edition) |

Feliz Dos De Mayo, friends!

Today’s actually my birthday (31 – whoo!), and I’m spending the weekend celebrating and soaking up the beach in Seaside, Florida with some blogging friends. But once I get back home, you’d better believe I’m going to be fiesta-ing it up for Cinco De Mayo on Monday!

So to celebrate today, I thought I would share a little Cinco de Mayo celebration for The Friday Five Cinco. And then I will promptly be following that up with a mega Nacho Night birthday party with friends. The Mexican food keeps coming long beyond Cinco de Mayo in my house. ;)

Hope that you have a lovely weekend, and early cheers to you for a fabulous 5th!
